Located in the Valdambra (Ambra Valley) area between Siena and Arezzo, you’ll love the unspoiled beauty and scenic views of olive orchards. This is an area with deep roots in agricultural traditions. A short drive from the villa is the medieval village of Ambra where there is a grocery store and a few shops. The town of Bucine has a supermarket, shops, restaurants and a small train station. Put on your ‘must see’ list a drive to Cortona, made famous by author Frances Mayes book ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’ and Arezzo, famous for its antiques market, charm, and medieval jousting. Siena is a 45 minute drive, Florence an hour, and Rome`s airport about three hours. You can avoid driving into Florence by catching the train in Bucine that gets you right into the center of that city in an hour.
The Frantoio Villa is a beautiful, stately stone farmhouse that blends the best of Tuscan charm with all the beauty and comfort of refined Italian taste.
